Just passing by

We decided to pop up to the 5th floor for a look at the view. An Americano coffee, glass of white wine and a medium sandwich later we had taken a few pictures and left very happy!

We were passing by the department store La Rinascente and noticed that they had a terrace cafe. We had visited La Rinascente in Milan which had a great view of the Milan Cathedral. We visited the terrace cafe and found it had a wonderful view of the Duomo and Giotto's tower. There was only one other person there when we... More

It seemed strange walking through the store to get here but tucked away on the top floor in the corner you will find stairs to the terrace and an oasis of tranquility above the rooftops of Florence. You may have to wait for a table, but make sure you wait. The views are great and it was the perfect place... More

Tucked away atop the Firenze branch of the elegant Dept Store Rena Centre, there is positioned the utterly perfect spot for a morning or afternoon coffee, a tasty luncheon or a thirst-quenching aperativo..in the fine weather months THIS is the place to be! Two warnings though~the singular view of the famed cathedral means you are constantly jostled by the happy-snapping... More

Somewhat overpriced.The service was fine and the food was just OK, but the view is spectacular! Well worth a visit! When you get to the top floor via the escalators look for the unmarked stairs to the roof top cafe to your right. Seems to be a bit of a secret wit the locals, which was a good thing. We... More

i wouldn't call the views spectacular, but you are well above the crowded streets in a central location. For a spectacular view you have to climb the duomo. A glass of white wine is 5 euro. It does make a nice change from the piazza.

A standard cafe fare with a nice view. It sounds like the crowd fighting goes on in summer time though since this sunny blue sky day in winter sees only a handful of people up here. The coffee is good and service a good solid 4 stars. There are nicer views in/of Florence but those I shall not divulge! Over... More

Incredible and spectacular views from a rooftop central to florence. Went at Sunset, great for wine and beautiful to see the lights come on all around Florence, Duomo is spectacular from this vantage point!

We came here for a couple of glasses of wine and to watch the sun go down on our first evening in Florence. The terrace is small so we were lucky to get a seat, even better that it was one overlooking the Duomo. The service was good but I can't comment on the food as we didn't have any..... More

We went to the roof top cafe in la Rinascente after we had walked up the Campanile. I had read in the rough guide to Florence this had great views, and was the perfect stop for a cappuccino. It did not disappoint! Very lovely.

Staying in Duomo

Neighborhood Profile
Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
